July 4th Pet Safety Reminders

Independence Day is Monday week and beginning this weekend Fourth of July celebrations will be in full swing. For many of us this means participating in all sorts of fun outdoor activities and fireworks. But usually holidays aren't so much fun for our Miniature Schnauzers. So take a few moments to read our Fourth of July Pet Safety Tips as well as our Summer Care Tips for Dogs and have a safe & Happy Fourth of July!

Happy Fourth of July

Be sure to send your family & friends a FREE Miniature Schnauzer Fourth of July ecard!

Fruity PUP-sicles


1 ripe banana
1/2 cup of naturally sweetened apple juice
1 cup plain no-fat yogurt
1 tablespoon honey

Mix all ingredients together thoroughly. Then pour mixture into freezer trays. Freeze overnight. A yummy cool treat on a hot summer day, for your Miniature Schnauzer.

What's in Your Schnauzer's Food Bowl?

Remember the pet food recall of 2007? Hopefully we are all practicing healthy food choices for our Miniature Schnauzers now.

If you have recently acquired your Miniature Schnauzer or need some help in choosing a quality dog food, you can use our easy-to-follow guide: Dog Food Ingredients: Do's & Don'ts     "How to determine the best dog food for your Miniature Schnauzer"

Another thing you might want to consider when purchasing dog food is to only buy from companies that do not test on animals. For example, Iams portrays such a wholesome image on its commercials right? but...

Iams inhumane practices continue to be well documented on such sites as www.peta.org and www.iamscruelty.com which both sponsor boycotts of Iams products.

If you are currently using Iams products, please watch this video. I bet you won’t want to feed your Miniature Schnauzer Iams ever again.

Caution: Video is disturbing
